IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week:  Former soccer great Mia Hamm was once quoted as saying, “Celebrate what you’ve accomplished, but also raise the bar a little higher each time you succeed.”  Most athletes that reach the pinnacle of their sport have a knack for doing just that. They remain hungry and stay focused after reaching short term goals.  They also think about development and improvement regardless of what happened the day before, good or bad.  It’s really a challenge to balance success while keeping an eye on consistent improvement.  Those that master that concept will be the ones that succeed when it counts the most!
